All-rounder Martin Andersson awarded two-year professional contract
Middlesex Cricket is today delighted to announce that all-rounder Martin Andersson has been awarded his first professional contract – signing a two-year deal with the club.
Until now Andersson has been playing on a summer contract, working around his studies at Leeds/Bradford University which finished this summer, and the twenty-one-year old’s full-time professional contract will start in January 2019 and run until at least the end of 2020.
Andersson has played a major role in Middlesex’s Second Eleven successes in recent seasons with both bat and ball and made his first eleven debut in Middlesex’s final Vitality Blast fixture of this year’s campaign against Sussex. He has previously played two first-class matches for Leeds/Bradford MCCU against Kent and Yorkshire.
Middlesex’s Managing Director Angus Fraser commented:
“Martin has made a really positive impression on everyone since leaving University.
“He has shown his adaptability by scoring hundreds in both T20 and red-ball cricket and he has bowled with control and discipline too.
“We believe he has the potential to develop into a fine all-round cricketer.”
Andersson himself commented:
“I am extremely proud to have been given this opportunity and am looking forward to the next two years here at Lord’s”.
